Top Ten Books for a Lazy Hour at the Beach

In the summer we spend many a lazy hour where we want a book to keep us company that will take us to other places, a book that can be romantic or suspensful or lush or oh so true or all at the same time. Here are ten books that are great choices for your beach bag.

1. The Geisha by Arthur Golden

2. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

3. In the Woods by Tana French

4. Desert Flower by Waris Dirie

5. Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

6. Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda

7. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

8. Half of the Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Aidichie

9. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

10. Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


  1. Your list is amazing! I've read a few of them and the ones I haven't read, I want to.

  2. Thank you. They are all just great!

  3. I can't believe I haven't read any of these on your lists. What's sad is that I have been meaning to! You have given me a little kick in the rump to get moving :) Great post.

  4. I want to read Tana French. I usually don't read thriller type books, but they look good.
